I have not further testimony to help prove this claim.

Jackson [X] Goins
Dayton, Tenn, June 23, 1908″

His nephew, Marshall Goins gave a deposition on the same date:

My name is Marshall Goins; I was born in Wilson County, Tennessee; I am twenty-eight years old; I claim my Indian blood through my father and mother; my fa­ther’s name is Joe Goins; my mother’s maiden name was Sally Goins. My father was born in Hamilton County, Tennessee. I do not know what year he was born; my mother was born in Dekalb County, Tennessee. I do not know what year. My mother claimed her Indian blood through her father and mother. My father claimed his Indian blood through his mother. I do not know where my grandfather and grandmother were born, but I think they were born in the state of Tennessee. I do not know when they were born. Neither my father or mother were enrolled, but I think my grandfather, Nathan Goins was enrolled. Neither my father or mother or grandparents were never considered as a member of an Indian tribe and never received any money. I have never received any money. I never heard of any of my ancestors being held as slaves. I first learned of my Indian blood from my mother, and she said I was part Cherokee, but she never said how much. My father and ancestors through [whom] I claim were regarded as white people in the community in which they lived. I am regarded as a white man and associate with white people. I was twenty-one years old when my mother died and five years old when my father died. My father and mother never had an Indian name. I never heard of any ances­tors through whom I claim as having an Indian name. My grandmother on my father’s side resided in Hamilton County, Tennessee in 1851. I do not know why my ancestors were never enrolled.
